SOMETIMES, don’t mind being a clown a bit. When acting light-hearted, we can make others feel the same. If instead of making others happy, we look like ready to scold at other all the time, what good does it make?
Besides cheering up others, we also need to remove our self-image and appearance. When we are able to make others feeling happy and joyful, it’s fine to scarify a bit. There is no need to over-emphasize on the self-image.
Be down to earth as a person and when handling matters. Being humble and modest helps to reduce the distance between us and others. Share our awareness with each and every one of them. Assist them to realize the origin of their lives. That is one kind of happiness too.
When we don’t mind playing the role of a clown, we are successful.
By the time we feel it matters not to let go of “self”, we are successful and ready to influence more people.
How did Buddha become Buddha? He didn’t treat all living creatures as others, but as himself.
When we think of an individual as not another but ourselves, we are him. We will not have the heart to reproach him, or dislike him. We’ll not look for his wrongdoings, or try to find his faults. We see his good because we have already accommodated him.
